Let me just say that in college I used to kill, kill I tell you, with my pitch-perfect impression of the Talking Moose delivering a string of obscenities.

Combine that with my breathtaking Shufflepuck skills and I was basically king of the Mac Plus set.

Moose don't tell jokes and deliver insults. They fucking charge your ass.

A moose spat on me at the Saskatoon Zoo once.
T'hell with the lot of them.

John Laroche: Look, I'll tell you a story, all right? I once feel deeply, profoundly in love with moose. Had 60 goddamn moose in my house. I hiked the forests to find just the right ones. Then one day I say fuck moose. I renounce moose. I vow never to set foot in that forest again. That's how much fuck moose. And there hasn't been a time where I have stuck so much as a toe back in that forest.

Susan Orlean: But why?

John Laroche: Done with moose.

I was never one for talking moose, but Glider on the other hand, I've spent hours playing that game. Now that's classic gaming.

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink".

We apologise for the fault in the subtitles. Those responsible have been sacked.

Mynd you, møøse bites Kan be pretty nasti...

homunculus writes "Moose don't tell jokes and deliver insults. They fucking charge your ass."

Looks like it's freeware, actually.

Message says, "DO NOT KEEL MOOSE", but it says nothink about squirrel!

This was one of the best, and by best I mean most annoying, little things for Macs back in the day. That someone would bother to create a program that hurled random insults at you (and that thousands of people would install such a program) is one of those "Mac things" no one else understands.

No, Europeans call them elk, in Canada a moose is a moose, and an elk is an elk or a wapiti. Elk have pointier antlers and narrower snouts, moose have wider antlers and look like they have a fat upper lip.

Oh, quin, how could I have missed that! My daughter and I play that episode on DVD endlessly.

I leave you to your moosey fate!

When I was 12 or so, I installed the talking moose on my aunt's mac while vacationing at her house. She did not know how to uninstall the moose. She did not like the moose. I can't see why not, it talked!

In retrospect, I can see why it might have been a little annoying.

Wasn't this part of that Stupid Mac Tricks book and floppy that was out in '92 or so? This and googly eyes were what showed me that Macs were truly the superior computing device.

Durhey, didn't that book also have the "melting desktop" trick? That was one of my favorites.
